The purpose of this event is to promote the development, dissemination and exchange of such experiences and to support such efforts of reflection and systematization. To this effect, selected solidarity practices developed by schools will be announced; these will be selected from a contest that is open until 27 August.
"Educational solidarity practices can integrate theoretical knowledge, practical knowledge, and action and supportive learning, and can develop social, personal, and academic skills together to create a link to a central aspect of education: the education of citizens committed to the society in which the live" says Daniela Eroles, Technical Assistant in the Area of Inclusive Education and Educational Innovations OREALC / UNESCO. She adds, "From a traditional view of citizenship and work restrictions, it is the job of the school to deliver the basic political literacy for future integration of young people in civic life. However, educational practices promote solidarity and generate a broad conception of citizenship that integrates an understanding of social reality through participation in the construction and transformation of that reality. A citizen is taught, and therefore learns, not only from the discourse and theory, but the balance between knowledge based and the actual exercising of relationships and actions linking school and community. Quality education for all, seeks to develop a more just society, UNESCO believes that the development of supportive educational practices is an opportunity to move in this direction."
